Weapon stats display overhaul

RS 9 months ago in All Platforms / PC • updated by WW1GameSeries 23 hours ago 1

Replace the "shots-hits-accuracy-kills-killed by" part of the tooltip info that you see when you hover over weapons on the squad loadout screen with the actual weapon stats you can see on the equipment screen in RDM/Attrition (ROF, reload, etc.)

People can check out their accuracy stats, amount of shots fired, etc. under "Account -> Weapons" outside of matches anytime.

Seeing the weapons' stats directly is more important during a match and helps new players get familiar with the weapons. They often ask "what's the differences between the weapons/weapon types" during a match because there's no way for them to see or even compare weapon stats outside of Attrition/RDM and it takes too much time to explain in detail in the chat during matches.

Like this:

Also rework which weapon stats are actually being displayed and the way in which they are, the red bars might look neat, but they only give a very ROUGH indication of the weapon's stats (at least without additional numbers on them), especially in comparisons. Grouping attachments into 2 rows 2 instead of 1 column of 4 would give the required space for the added info.

Like this:

Grouping stuff by weapon class would imo also be much better than sorting the weapons alphabetically.

And just to really idiot-proof the whole thing, add all that on the main menu weapon screen as well:

Also make it so that the tooltip stays as long as you hover over the resp. card and doesn't just disappear after a bit.

Game Version:
Reproduction steps:
"What's the difference between different German MGs?", "What's the difference between rifles/carbines, pistols/revolvers?" -> Regularly asked by new players (sometimes even players that have been around for a bit)
